In our practice we are often given the opportunity to capture and represent human bodies. We shoot for many fashion clients, music videos and corporate clients, where a very narrow perspective on beauty exists.
During the Luminous Bodies residency, we will challenge our techniques and visual representations of people through photo and video portraiture.
Chris Altorf and Jessica Hayes have been working together for ten years telling stories visually. They have a foundation in portrait photography which sharpened their sensitivity to communication through facial expressions. They are keenly interested in experimental and sensational ﬁlm-making which they’ve been able to explore by making music videos. Being technically curious has helped them to work with a lot of new technology in their practice, including building an interrotron for their short documentary LOVE YA.
